If it jiggles it’s fat
About a month ago, I wrote this in an email:
“1. If it jiggles it’s fat (not just talking about Schwarzenegger’s take on weight loss…)”
To which the inevitable question came:
Hi Ben! These points are great. I printed this email and put it on the wall so I can read it again and again. Only point 1 is not clear. What do you mean with “If it jiggles it’s fat (not just talking about Schwarzenegger’s take on weight loss…)” ?
Physiologically it means the human body doesn’t lie to you.
Nobody being honest with themselves ever mistakes anything that jiggles for muscle…
From a business perspective it can mean a lot of things:
- Excess words that needlessly bloat a sales page is jiggle
- Time spent scrolling social media thinking you are “doing business” vs legitimately working in your business is jiggle
- Possessions you don’t use, don’t need, and that clog up space/mind/time is jiggle
- Employees (especially office politicians) who don’t earn their keep or create chaos is jiggle
- Offers/products/content that cost more to produce than they earn (i.e., the rash of woke CW superhero shows that just got the axe, etc) is jiggle
- Emails with no offer or don’t lead to a sale (i.e., so-called “good will” emails) is jiggle
- Time spent tracking metrics you do nothing practical with is jiggle
- Energy invested into virtue signaling on social media over taking action is jiggle (i.e., “I’m going to write a book!” vs actively writing the book)
- And so on, and so forth
Anything that jiggles ain’t muscle.
Word to the wise and all that.
